What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
If you can, PLAN WELL AHEAD. Dresses can take 5-6 months to be made once you find the one you like, And always add at least a month to that for adjustments after the dress is made.
Don't leave choosing and ordering your dress too late. Some designers will make a dress quickly (3-4 months) for an extra charge but the norm is 5-6 months from order date to be ready. Ideally, you should allow yourself at least 7 months before the wedding to look and order your dress, and this allows for any changes once the dress is made. Leaving it late can be stressful.
Look too early, and the dress you fall in love with may no longer be available by the time you decide to order. We'd recommend yo start looking 12 to 9 months out from the wedding. This gives you time to decide on your dress, and order.
If your wedding plans are last minute, and occasionally it happens, ask if their are any sample sale dresses you can buy immediately. You won't have a full choice of dresses but you may well get a nice dress and a real bargain.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Brides can enquire about our dresses via our website and then book an appointment themselves online.

We recommend you coming to us for this exclusive assistance, but if you cannot, then we do offer a selection of dresses that can be ordered online and sent to you.
